The day started with a lesson on making Welsh cakes. The day held a promise of sunshine, despite a rain during the night. My landlady, Sally, was my teacher.

We had talked, made cakes and drank tea all morning. For the remaining day, I went back to Llanberis to visit the part of the National Slate Museum not viewed on the last visit. I visited the tiny miners homes in the back. There were cowboy books on the bookshelves in the 1960s home which made me smile. I’ve had three North Welshmen tell me this trip about being fascinated with the West and cowboys. Shouldn’t have surprised me with my encounter of The Ponderosa gift shop and cafe at the top of Horseshoe Pass on the previous trip. And there was this at the beginning of the week.

The rest of the tour was a bit eerie going through the machine shops, forge room, etc. It felt as though the workers were just on a break and would show up any moment.

It was getting late and getting cooler. I went in search for Caffi Sam where I had visited before. Finding it I decided on the chicken and mushroom pastime with salad. The serving was generous.

Tomorrow’s plan is to do a walk on Anglesey and turn the car in.
